EcoBuz StartGro is a blend of organic and inorganic nutrition, targets the early growth stages of plants and is based largely on this biochemical sequence. Its’ most significant point of differentiation is that it contains no N and P, with only small traces of K. This makes StartGro ideally suited to trigger the growth process. As such, StartGro is recommended for use at planting, be it from seed, seedlings or transplants, and is suitable for shrubs, trees, edibles and more.
StartGro contains (along with other micronutrients) a Boron (B), Silica (Si) and Calcium (Ca) ‘complex’ that kickstarts plant growth, allowing N, P, K and the other essential plant nutrients to be absorbed and utilized as needed.
Directions for use:
- Drench applications: Dilute 5ml of StartGro (1 x capful or 1 x sachet) in 5L of water and mix well.
- Foliar applications: Dilute 5ml of StartGro (1 x capful or 1 x sachet) in 1L of water and mix well.
- Apply at transplanting of seedlings or planting of pots, and monthly thereafter. Also recommended for application after germination.
- EcoBuz StartGro contains a blend of organic and inorganic nutrients, it will not burn or harm plants if over-applied. (Potassium, Sulphur, Calcium, Magnesium, Manganese, Zinc, Iron, Silica, Copper, Molybdenum and Boron)
Calcium, Boron & Silica Explained:
Calcium (Ca) the ‘trucker’ of all nutrients:
Calcium ‘carries’ nutrients through the plant improving overall plant growth. Ca is immobile so a continuous supply is essential.
Boron (B) the ‘truck driver’:
Boron creates sap pressure – essential for nutrient uptake (B & Ca work closely together). Without Boron healthy plant growth can’t start. Boron leaches easily, and N & K are antagonistic towards Boron making it commonly lacking in garden soils.
Silica (Si) strengthens cell walls resulting plants are stronger, less susceptible to drought, heat, pests & diseases. (Essential in a water-wise, heat tolerant garden)
